Greek Yogurt vs. Cottage Cheese

In the shake recipes that call for cottage cheese, could lowfat greek yogurt be subbed? A absolutely, positively abhor cottage cheese. The mere thought of it makes me gag. I love greek yogurt, though.

The nutritional breakdown for 2% Fage is:

200g serving
130 cal
4g fat
8 g carb
17 g protien

thoughts?

Thanks!
Heather

Hi Heather, I don't see a problem with the sub. Nutritional value is similar. Seems like a no-brainer especially if you love one and hate the other, lol

Cottage cheese is higher in protein and lower in carbs, but only by a slim margin on both. I agree with Jochua; it's an appropriate substitution.

Consider trying the cottage cheese in your shake, though. Many people are bothered more by the texture than the taste and find that, when blended, it's more palatable.

Thanks, guys.

I went through a period where I tried to learn to like cottage cheese. I tried blending it- it didn't help. I'll just use yogurt :).

Yogurt has other benefits too - like the live, active cultures.

fage makes a fat free yogurt as well, you might want to give that a whirl as well.

I'm sure you probably did, but I'll ask anyway - did you try different brands? I was amazed at the difference between manufacturers of CC... some are salty, goopy, disgusting packages of unpalatable white chunky soups. The others are tender and quite tasty all by themselves, and almost don't need any fruit/flavor. I was honestly shocked! Especially since the cheapest I can find (500g for $2.50 CDN) is better than the more expensive ones (250g for $3.50)

I've also run across cultured cottage cheese that has a tangy flavor like yogurt. I enjoyed it.

I'm not going to press the issue with harmstrong, though. Some people just don't care for certain foods.

yeah, that's fair enough - I only asked because I was once in her position... it really did come down to finding the right brand, which is something that really surprised me :)

Don't get me wrong, I agree with you, but I don't need any convincing; I already like cottage cheese.
